pShortly after Christine had her surgery on August 7th, we received a package from her friends on the em”

A person was traveling for work and she happened to be pregnant. She is from Minnesota and she was away in the Bay Area of California. While there she began going into contractions and ended up having her baby a couple weeks early. No one was there to support her, physically, but everyone on the forum, including the forum’s founder got together and made sure that everything was taken care of including getting a ride home, since she couldn’t fly with such a young baby. The forum’s founder is from the area and she visited her several times, including a the time before her husband could get there to be with her. As you can see, this isn’t a fly by night operation and they let Christine and I know it when they banded together to support us when we needed it. We, all of us, including Ainsleigh want to thank them for their tremendous generosity and help in getting though those first couple of days after Christine’s surgery. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone involved.

Below are a couple of pictures of what they sent from “

    That#39;s certainly true. There were others, and we surely thank them for their time with us.

    As the girl from MN who had her baby 8 weeks early in CA … I can back Will up here, this forum has been AMAZING. I received so much support while we were in CA for a month after our daughter#39;s birth (emotionally, financially, personally, etc.). Who would have thought that a wedding planning forum would lead to such great friendships that have lasted years after the actual wedding!br /br /I do want to add that Christine has been key to the support group on the forum; she manages the financial contributions that the members make and often coordinates the actual gifts! So this was the least that we could do.
